About Suzanne Forbes

I'm an old school figurative artist with a deep art education.
I've worked as a courtroom artist for CBS and CNN and as a penciller for DC Comics' Star Trek. Now I'm a portraitist and live drawing documentarian, which is a description I made up for going places and drawing people doing what they do as they do it.

Patreon makes my work as a documentary artist possible. I pledge to keep making art that represents diversity, visibility and inclusiveness.

You can give as a little as $1 per post, which is a piece of art or writing published on my blog,, and set a limit on your contribution per month, as little as $1 total. I'm thrilled to have whatever you give!

I've made thousands of live drawings and portraits of people, focused on alternative culture, representation and visibility. You can see the drawings on my blog and  here on flickr, most licensed Creative Commons for anyone to print out or use with attribution. 
Thank you so much for being willing to help.

I like to teach drawing, and if I had some kind of wee video camera on my head I could make some helpful videos.
